>> my father, you know, he taught me the work ethic, and also how to be a man. you know, bill walsh, i don't think i would have gotten drafted by the san francisco 49ers without bill. coming from a very small, predominant black school like that, to take a chance like that and make this player your first round draft choice takes a lot of guts. >> no one will ever question jerry rice's work ethic. add that to the talent he had, probably is the greatest football player all the way around. his father, bricklayer instilled the effort in him. if ever a hall of famer, jerry rice is the guy. >> vintage pictures. >> not bad at quarterback, putting the ball in his hands. >> joe montana. there we go. dropping it in. i like the ball boy. good play by him. >> congratulations to jerry
